Renato Zenobi is Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the Organic Chemistry Laboratory of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich. He was also one of the founders and directors of the center of excellence in analytical chemistry (CEAC, 1995 - 2007) at the ETH Zurich.   Renato Zenobi was born in Zurich in 1961. He received a M.S. degree from the ETH Zurich in 1986, and a Ph.D. at Stanford University in the USA in 1990, followed by two postdoctoral appointments at the University of Pittsburgh (1990 - 1991) and at the University of Michigan (1991). Renato Zenobi returned to Switzerland in 1992 as a Werner Fellow at the EPFL, Lausanne, where he established his own research group. He became assistant professor at the ETH in 1995, was promoted to associate professor in 1997, and to full professor in 2000. He was chairman of the Organic Chemistry Laboratory in 2002-2003. He was a visiting professor at the Barnett Institute (Boston) in 2004/2005 and at the Institut Curie (Paris) in 2010. He served as the president of ETH's university assembly (Hochschulversammlung, HV) from 2006 - 2008, and as the president of the lecturer's conference (Konferenz des Lehrkörpers, KdL) at ETH Zurich from 2006-2010.

 

Zenobi's research areas include laser-based analytical chemistry, electrospray and laser-assisted mass spectrometry, laser-surface interactions, and near-field optical microscopy and spectroscopy. He has made important contributions to the understanding of the ion formation mechanism in matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry and to the development of analytical tools for the nanoscale.   Renato Zenobi has received several awards for his scientific work, aincluding the Thomas Hirschfeld Award (1989), an Andrew Mellon Fellowship (1990), the Ruzicka Prize (1993), the Heinrich Emanuel Merck-Prize (1998), the Theophilus Redwood Lectureship (2005), the Michael Widmer Award (2006), the Schulich Graduate Lectureship (2009), a honorary membership of the Israel Chemical Society (2009), honorary Professorships from East China Institute of Technology (2007), from Hunan University (2010), the Changchun University of Chinese Medicine (2010), and the Chinese Academy of Science / Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry (2010). He was the recipient of a Mayent-Rothschild fellowship in 2010.
